Situated at the foot of the Swartberg Pass, Dennehof Karoo Guest House is Prince Albert’s oldest homestead – a serene, comfortable base and perfect starting point for experiencing some of South Africa’s unexplored scenery.
With an 1835 Cape Dutch Farmhouse and outbuildings at the edge of town, the setting is full of personality. Nights can be spent star-gazing and identifying the sounds of nature, and day activities include mountain bike riding, hiking or swimming in a big and round, old reservoir.
Dennehof offers tours of the Swartberg Pass or all the way to Gamkaskloof (known as “The Hell”), by registered tour guide, Lindsay. Participants can choose to drive with him in his vehicle or – for those who prefer to soak up as much fresh air as possible – cycle.
Various room options are available, including the honeymoon suite in a converted old wagon shed. The suite is fitted with a Victorian bath on a secluded outside patio, as well as a fireplace, king-sized bed and an indoor en-suite shower.
